Fabric Donates £68,000 To Charity As #saveourculture Comes To An End

October 24, 2017

When Fabric temporarily closed its doors in September last year, everyone banded together and started fundraising to support the club. After raising over £330,000, and with the help of the #saveourculture campaign on social media, the club ultimately reached an agreement with Islington Council and the police and reopened a few months later. Throughout the process, Fabric published frequent transparency statements, explaining where they were in the process, how the money raised was being spent, and a blow-by-blow account of their legal fight. 

In their latest statement they announced they had a spare £68,000 and would be donating it o the following charities: The Loop, NTIA, Music Venue Trust, Centrepoint Midi Music Company, Make-A-Wish UK, Nordoff Robbins and YUAF. Fabric also had a board put up in the club (below) with the names of everyone who contributed to the fund. You can go see it at Fabric's weekend celebration which includes a fabriclive party on Friday and a marathon party from Saturday night until Monday morning. Head here for tickets and more info.
